True Story: Kit Harington Didn’t Know His Own Name Until He Was 11

To quote my friend Gabi, it seems that Jon Snow really does know nothing–not even his own name.

In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, super cutie Kit Harington revealed that he didn’t know his real name was actually Christopher and not Kit until he was 11. Why wouldn’t his parents tell him that?! “I haven’t got a clue! I think they could see that I wanted to be Kit, but Christopher was a bit of a tradition.”

OK, I kind of love that his name became Kit because he liked it so much. 

Also, is everyone mentally prepared for the Game of Thrones finale on Sunday night? According to Kit, isn’t going to be the best episode of GOT. And be prepared to have your mind blown. “Usually the big impact episode is (the ninth), and then we wrap everything up in the 10th. But this show doesn’t like doing what people think is going to happen; we like changing things up, and it’s a lot that happens in this episode. It’s going to throw a lot of people, it’s going to be very exciting.”

That’s all well and good, but Kit, can you take your clothes off please? I would appreciate that. Now I need to know readers, did your parents not tell you something random in your childhood? First look at photos of Kit in the gallery, then get back to me, because I know you wanna look at Kit being cute.
